I have noticed that people sometimes use the netgurus mailing list as a
general forum for asking networking questions in the advanced R&E
community.  Is there any thought about merging the two
communities/mailing lists?  I realize netgurus has traditionally been an
invite-only list, so it may not be easy to self-select into it.

It seems like having an advanced R&E list that deals with more advanced
topics could still be useful.  Are there any ednog members who are also
part of netgurus who would like to see an advanced R&E mailing list that
people could choose to join?
